Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies made with dairy-free ingredients for an easy and healthier "brookie" recipe

I first had a “brookie” when I was in college. For those of you scratching your head questioning what that even means, not to worry – it is a funny name for a brownie and cookie layered bar. Think fudgey brownie bottom layer topped with a chocolate chip cookie. It is a double whammy of straight up dessert heaven.

These healthier “brookies” are absolutely life changing.

To be honest I am surprised it took me this long to share a homemade brownie cookie recipe but these Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies were well worth the wait. I knew I wanted to make them as delicious and easy to make as possible. Thinking about making a brownie cookie bar also just makes me think of a recipe with double the clean up, but these are so simple and I promise your kitchen won’t look like a bomb went off when you pop these in the oven.

There is a brownie base topped with chocolate chip cookie dough.

For the coconut oil in this recipe, I use Garden of Life’s Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. This is one of my biggest pantry staples. I use it for so many recipes and also keep extra jars in my bathroom and bedroom for non-baking related things. I love that you can melt the coconut oil in the microwave so easily to get it to liquid form (what we do here) then just wait a couple minutes for it to cool before baking with.

If you decided to sub flax egg for the pasture-raised eggs in this recipe, you can also use Garden of Life’s flaxseeds in there to make a flax egg. Either way these Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies will be delicious!
